of the majority. this stunning rules change by the senate majority can best be described as obamacare two. one of the things that americans really didn't like about the new health care law, obamacare, was that it was passed in the dead of night by a purely partisan vote during a snowstorm. it showed that those who had the votes could do whatever they want no matter what the minority thought and we can see the results. millions of americans having their policies canceled, next year tens of millions will, those who get their insurance through employers. this is another example of that kind of power play. this kind of the goal was to help the administration and the democratic majority advance its radical agenda unchecked through the courts and the executive agencies. as the senator from michigan, senator levin, said -- quoting, a quorummer republican senator, senator vandenberg, senator levin is a democrat, said if the majority of the senate can changed the rules at any time, there are no rules. if a majority of the senate can change its rules at any time, there are no rules. just as if pittsburg

good. on your first question about obamacare, the best thing to happen to obamacare was the government shutdown. i remember asking a guy who was defending it about two and a half weeks in when we finally started talking about the website and all the problems -- remember there were glitches. i said when can we start calling these glitches a debacle? he said by the middle of november if the website is not finished. today is november 19. it is a tremendous debacle. it's not just the website. it's incredible that the greatest country in the world has spent hundreds of millions of dollars loving a website, -- building a website, and the thing doesn't work. i am tired of hearing excuses that it is going to work by november 30, when it likely is not. there is more than the website. the website is the least of their problems. it is perhaps most embarrassing. in life you get one chance to make a first impression. that is the first impression you made. we are seeing democrats like diane feinstein getting behind efforts on policy, on issues like the cancellation of policies, and that isn't going

people to go back to their old policies even if they are technically in violation of obamacare, the new health care law. it could affect up to five million people. the europe any is is, that republicans such as yourself, are more interested in supporting the president's change than democrats. why is that? >> i would think it is happenstance. we are regulators at state level and it is our call as he acknowledged in his press conference and meeting with us a week later, we are the regulators of health insurance. in fact he said during our meeting some of his advisors originally wanted him to displace us and take it all under the federal government authority and he said no. david: let me push back a little here because 10 democratic states, 10, have said, we are oppose the president's plan. we want to continue with obamacare as it was. people who lost their policies that is too bad for them. we have to go on, get all the young people with all extra things they don't want or desire, get them to pay for it. so my own feeling is, that they realize, democratic commissioners realize obamacare f

the day before the government shutdown which was also day one of obamacare on october 1 or 2nd i guess. he was asked, what about george zimmerman? he said the investigation is ongoing. you have to understand the fbi spent three months investigating george zimmerman and they cleared him fully 16 months ago. not only that but just quickly zimmerman's most prominent role in sanford was the year before this incident took place a black homeless man had been punched out at the son of the police lieutenant and was brushed away. zimmerman happily got involved, printed out flyers and handed them out all over the city, spoke publicly on video in front of -- in defense of sherman where and it led to the termination of the police chief. that is how active in public he was. he had on the top of the flyer a quote from me famous anglo irishman and it said people can try and only when men of good will do nothing. he would have been better off using a quote from another anglo irishman oscar wilde, no good deed goes unpunished. they just ignored all that and that all went away but the whole thing went in ab
